International child health research meeting scheduled

A 1-day meeting, "International Child Health Services Research: Advancing Knowledge, Informing Action, Improving Child Health Care," will be held September 20, 2003, in Washington, DC, as an affiliate meeting of the 5th International Conference on the Scientific Basis of Health Services. The child health meeting is being cosponsored by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and AcademyHealth.

This will be the first ever affiliate meeting focused on child health services research. The goal is to advance children's health care and health through the establishment of a strategic focus for international child health services research activities. The meeting will bring together leaders from diverse countries to address the current under-emphasis on children in the international dialogue on health care quality and improvement.
